New This Week: Blockers, Beirut, Furious, and more

Plus, new rentals and Movies still in theaters

 

Rock Out Now That Blockers Is Out

Parents, kids, and prom night shenanigans - Watch Blockers, now on Vudu!

Blockers. Maybe you’ve been the victim of one. Or maybe worse, you are one. In either case, it’s more enjoyable to watch John Cena, Leslie Mann, Ike Barinholtz, and Kathryn Newton try their best to block their kids on prom night.

 

Watch and laugh as John Cena lets his guard down – among other things (did you see the trailer?) – and becomes the over-sensitive, helicopter parent we always knew he was. WWVDD (What would Vin Diesel do)? He’d watch this movie.

 

The Politics of Streaming

 

They say it’s not polite to talk about politics. We say, they never said anything about watching them. So check out these new releases that just happen to have an element of political thriller to them.

 

Watch the cat and mouse drama of Beirut, now available on Vudu!

 

You’d have to be a madman to be a diplomat in Beirut in the early 80s. But John Hamm, is (reluctantly) up to the challenge of negotiating the release of a CIA spy. Beirut is filled with espionage, geopolitics, and civil war – and cool sunglasses. No need for cat and mouse, Beirut will put you front and center of the action.

 

Furious is furiously entertaining, watch it now on Vudu!

 

THIS…IS…Russia? What do you get when you cross 300 and legendary Russian folk story mainstay Evpaty Kolovrat? Furious. And trust us, it is furious. Barbarian politics usually come in the form of ultimatums, and Evpaty and his army don’t take too kindly to demands after the destruction of their village. Revenge is sweet, and it’s available now.

 

Based on the best-selling book, watch The Yellow Birds on Vudu!

 

The Yellow Birds takes a dramatic look at the politics of war, unwavering loyalty to the chain of command, and the trials of returning to civilian life.  Based on the novel of the same name by Veteran Kevin Powers, The Yellow Birds is available to watch now while it’s still in theaters.

 

Blackmail, double-crosses...just another day in politics - watch Affairs of State on Vudu

 

And you can’t have politics without some blackmail? Good thing Affairs of State happens to have a post office full of it. More New York Post than Washington Post, it’s got plenty of scandals, treachery, and drama – you know, all the everyday stuff of DC. It’s in theaters now, but you can watch at home, or anywhere, with Vudu.

 

Rent Pacific Rim Uprising and Unsane

Watch these Jaeger masters in action in Pacific Rim Uprising, now available for rent

 

Pacific Rim Uprising is rising up quickly as a Vudu favorite. And starting today, you can rent it in up to 4K + HDR. Check out this Jaeger-sized sequel that gives you more Kaiju and more Jaegers – not to mention more destruction – and get up to 30 days to start the movie and 48 hours to watch.

 

If Unsane is on your list and you know it, but don't really want to own it, rent Unsane on Vudu tonight

 

Know what’s insane about Unsane? It was shot on an iPhone 7. All of it. So we’re not sure who’s crazier, Claire Foy, who thinks she sees her stalker everywhere, or director Steven Soderbergh, for actually shooting a movie on a phone.  Rent it today and watch it on your phone. #meta
